BAFUNCS Benevolent Fund (BBF)

The Benevolent Fund is administratively entirely separate from BAFUNCS, but it is under the control of Trustees drawn from and appointed by the Association. The BAFUNCS Benevolent Fund is registered with the United Kingdom Charity Commissioners (Registered Number 297524). The Fund seeks to provide relief to members of the Association and their dependants in cases of need, hardship or distress.  Similar support is available to any former employee of the United Nations or of its Specialised Agencies provided they are resident in the United Kingdom.
